Identifying damage in corn roots after pollination can help growers evaluate current management practices and plan ahead for next year.
Without many serious problems to look at, this is a good time to consider whether this corn crop will turn out to be as good as it looks, and what threats might linger as we move into the six weeks over which yield will be made.
Arysta LifeScience China and South Asia (CSA) has received registration for Dinamic 70WG herbicide for corn in China.

Afternoon Comments 07/28
Corn futures followed the soy markets higher. The prospect of a huge fall crop has badly depressed corn futures, but prices rebounded in concert with the soy complex Monday. Talk of surging export demand for soybeans and dryer August weather is apparently supporting the markets. Traders were probably disappointed by the Export Inspections result, but futures acted well anyway. September corn gained 4.75 cents to $3.5775/bushel at their Monday close, while December rose 5.0 cents to $3.7675.
